I used Mr. Ashmore during a difficult divorce with child custody issues. Everything was great at first, however, when I encountered issues with my ex toward the end of the finalization, I could not get any help or return phone calls from the firm. I just needed some simple answers and I finally just quit calling and gave up. I am now seeking a new attorney for modificiation of child custody, which is going to cost me more money. Unfortunately, knowing what I do now, I would not recommend this firm.
In 2003, a surprise divorce filing with false accusation prompted me to seek counsel. Not a “yellow page” event, I networked my way to Jim Ashmore. Over the next 5 months, he helped me separate legal issue from drama, listed options, advised, filed, and navigated through the problem.
I finally defaulted to a “soft” response. Jim cautioned me against this but respected my opinion and filed accordingly. Over the next seven years, several additional law suits were filed against me. I was at risk and (more importantly) my kids were at risk.
Jim’s broad experience and penchant for detail lead to positive outcome throughout the entire dilemma. He always went over options, created a sound plan, and was well prepared for hearings and trials. Jim stays calm and flexible in court, adjusting when required. His demeanor and approach earns respect of judges, opposing attorneys, and witnesses.
My observations are not based on whim. Exhausting legal work behind, my family and I are on the mend. This journey took me through 3 courts in 2 counties with (over time) 5 opposing attorneys. I simply continued to show up with the same attorney, Jim Ashmore.
